    Ok place, more hotel then lodge really. We'd been travelling around Tanzania staying in bush lodges, so this place felt more urban. Rooms were good, & staff friendly. Food was quite good too, although service was slow.

    Ilboru safari lodge has comfortable boma-style rooms, a fine swimming pool and beautiful landscaped grounds. The breakfast is excellent and sets one up for the day. The staff is friendly and helpful. An added attraction was an acrobatic show by the pool on one evening.
